‘Happy’ is the first single from Hull/Leeds-based band bdrmm’s debut album, which will be released later in the year and has been recorded and mixed by Alex Greaves (Working Mens Club, Bo Ningen) and mastered by Heba Kadry (Slowdive, Beach House). It sounds huge – ‘Just Like Heaven’ meets the first DIIV album – and is a real step up from last year’s EP, but it’s actually one of the first songs they ever wrote.
Frontman Ryan Smith says: “It holds a special place in my heart and we never will tire of playing it. It all stems from that realisation in a break-up that you’re over the worst of it, you can move on, and you can wish the other well. Resentment is toxic, this is about letting go.”
